  • Barbara is an exceptional master at her trade, and a true professional. We have received such high compliments on her calligraphy from the recipients of our envelopes. She not only guided us through the decision of fonts and inks to help us through the whole process but also delivered on time and with a smile.

  • We were referred to Barbara and Belles Lettres by a friend who had worked with her and had a fantastic experience. Hers was no anomaly - Barbara is incredibly organized, extremely efficient, and of course, her work is really beautiful. We used Barbara for both invitation calligraphy and day-of elements and all of the work was great. She has a very clear system for clients to provide the underlying information which was easy to work with and ensures there were no mistakes. Many thanks to Barbara - we truly appreciate her amazing efforts on our behalf! Highly recommend!

  • I can't say enough good things about working with Belles Lettres. We went with Barbara's mixed lettering look, and the invitations turned out looking absolutely beautiful. Barbara is also very transparent, easygoing, and helpful. She carefully spelled out all of her services and what the costs would be, and offered suggestions and samples to guide us to the right style. I highly recommend!

  • Working with Barbara was great. I was a little overwhelmed by invitation shops, but mostly knew what I wanted: classic but personalized. I first asked about envelope addressing, but wound up having her create a custom suite for me including a logo that we used in many other ways that made the whole event seem pulled together. Barbara helped me through so much more of the process than she needed to, guiding me towards the wonderful Bernardsville Print Center for the actual printing of her custom design. She was quick and thorough with all communication, and was able to adeptly and swiftly handle last minute additions and changes as I changed my mind a few times. She helped when I didn't know what words to use to describe what it was that I wanted. By the end of the process the invitation went from something that was on the back burner, to one of my favorite elements. I loved hearing feedback from guests that it was, without hyperbole, the nicest invitation they had ever seen... Read more

  • I'm not one to write reviews, but felt like this was an exception. I had Barbara do the addresses on my wedding invitations, and they blew me away. She did gold script on our black envelopes and when I received them in the mail I was so impressed. They took the quality and customization of our wedding invitations to the next level. Working with Barbara was a breeze. Wedding planning is difficult and I wasn't the best at emailing promptly, but Barbara was always on top of it. We had issues getting our envelopes in time, so we were worried everything would be sent out extremely late. Barbara was a champ and turned around our beautiful addressed envelopes in record time. I initially thought the price was a bit high (I had also never hired a calligrapher), but after seeing the quality and ease of working with her it was worth every penny. I would highly recommend choosing her for your next calligraphy needs. She will not disappoint! (I blurred out part of the address and names in m... Read more

  • We used BL Calligraphy for our envelope addresses, our table numbers, a few signs, and escort cards. Everything came out beautifully and the turn around time was incredibly fast! Thank you so much! Liz and Mark

  • Barbara is the ultimate combination of talent, professionalism, dedication, and care. She worked with us on a very short time line, and spent the bulk of her Thanksgiving holiday weekend making certain that she was creating a unique and beautiful wedding invitation suite that was entirely in line with our vision. She even gave herself a crash course in the Hebrew alphabet in order to accommodate one of our requests. And although Barbara turned things around at lightening speed every step along the way, she never rushed us, always making certain that we were one hundred per cent happy with everything down to the smallest detail. We truly could not have been happier with our experience from start to finish. Barbara is a gem!

  • I was on the fence about having my invites hand addressed by a professional, I wasn't sure it would be worth the cost. Using Barbara might be the best decision I made during wedding planning- she is AMAZING!!! 100% worth the cost- I actually think for what she does, she is very reasonably priced. It saved me time, which is priceless. Her work is incredible and above that she is patient and professional (as I changed my mind a few times and had some address changes). She has several styles to choose from and also guided me on which would work best with my invite. I could not recommend her more!! An invitation is the first impression your guest has of your event, it sets the tone- it's so important!! Hire her- she's fabulous!

  • Barbara was, in a word, amazing! She responded almost immediately to my initial inquiry and suggested a call to talk through my questions and figure out what calligraphy style best suited me. She even had suggestions about vintage postage vendors. Once I got my invitation list together for her, she turned things around in the blink of an eye. I honestly cried up when I unpacked my addressed invitations...they were are gorgeous! I can't stop looking at them...alas they do have to be mailed. I can't recommend Barbara enough!

  • Barbara came highly recommend by our florist, A Touch of Elegance, and she certainly did not disappoint. She was amazing to work with; eliminating stress by answering any questions we had promptly and offering great advice. All of our guests loved our mirror seating chart with the beautiful calligraphy and adorable personal touches. We cannot thank you enough Barbara!!!

  • Barbara was outstanding! She was so helpful and accommodating with lettering request and ideas. She made the entire process so seamless, each time I would drop off items to be lettered they would be completed within just a few days! Everything was beautiful – she addressed my invite envelopes, place cards, table numbers and even signs for our wedding. I loved her writing so much that it was tough to part with the envelopes! Barbara was even helpful when some of the paper I provided was too thin to write on – she ended up ordering the perfect paper I had in mind. She was quick to respond to email and accommodating with last minute changes. We had many compliments from guests – most ended up saving their name cards they were so beautiful! I highly recommended Barbara. – you won’t be disappointed!

  • Barbara is such a wonderful artist and a lovely woman to work with. I was so fortunate to be introduced to her through other vendors I used for my wedding day! I went to Barbara for calligraphy for our place cards, specialty drink signs, and custom signs to go on our place card table. We spoke on the phone first about my concept for the place card table and she referred me to a great resource called WaxSeals.com to go along with her cards and it totally completed the look! I would hire her again for every special event.

  • Barbara was amazing! Within a week I had all of my 70 save the dates done and in my possession. She asked any questions and fully communicated with me throughout the entire process. It was an absolute pleasure to work with her and I can't wait to have her do my invitations!

  • Barbara is the ultimate professional and her work is gorgeous. Barbara was willing to customize parts of her existing calligraphy fonts to match the font on my invitation, and turned the invitations around in under one week. I had last minute changes and requests, and Barbara handled all of them promptly and happily. I would heartily recommend Barbara to anyone looking for beautiful calligraphy work done for their wedding.
